    I doe exactly how A & C feel with regards to having a sneezy wheezy dose..........*more sniffs* !!


    So relieved to hear that the gorgeous Rex couple have been deemed to be OK by William.

    I have not used F10 as a Flystrike prevention, I think 'Shimmer' does so hopefully she'll see this thread. Or you could PM her, I doubt she'd mind
    Actually my hayfever has been worse recently...

    Oo thanks I will

    I mentioned about Atticus and his messy bum and I was worried about fly strike etc, and he suggested some spray called F10 as opposed to rearguard as its nicer to apply - any one used this?

    Thanks everyone for your support I really appreciate it and I feel a lot better since seeing William. Hopefully I can just keep going, stop panicking and just pray everything will be fine xx

    I'm so glad that William has pronounced on your two beauties

    I hope the Piriton helps

    Regarding F10, I have seen so many rabbits get a skin 'burn' from using this that I wouldn't recommend personally. But there will always be differing opinions and experiences, so you have to make your own mind up about that

    Yea, I've never used anything before for bunnies, never had any issues - but considering the state Atticus gets in down there and he's spending more and more time outside, seems like I don't really have a choice but to use something like that just on him. William actually looked at someone who had wrote a post on here warning people not to use it - but the post said they'd used it daily instead of once a week? Idk he said once a week it should be okay. Don't like using chemicals on them, especially ones they'll ingest but feel like I don't really have a choice..

    Would once a week be really enough to keep flystrike at bay? He would groom it away within that time surely?

    It is weekly when used as a Flystrike prevention

    Dosage and administration
    Use only as directed. It is good practice to wear gloves during application. Remove all organic material and clean the wound using a 1:250 concentration of F10 Antiseptic Solution (Concentrate). Spray over the site (maximum of 5 applications per animal with multiple wounds, 1 - 2 trigger pulls (1 - 2ml) per wound) and leave to dry. Repeat as necessary. The product may also be applied weekly in the same manner to prevent fly strike and tick bites[.

    Yea as Jane's posted ^ apparently once a week is all that's needed for fly strike prevention - must do more than just sit on the skin I'm guessing? I'll have to have a big Google later before I order - been at my house with Thames water still trying to sort drains out D: it's never endingggg

    General prevention of flystrike: F10 Germicidal Wound Spray with Insecticide can be used on a regular basis to help prevent flystrike and the spread of myxomatosis by deterring flies, fleas and other biting insects. Just apply weekly to the rear end of the animal or any areas of specific concern. For pets where the risk of flystrike is high or those who regualrly bathe then reapplication daily may be more appropriate.


    I was thinking of your specific issues, and perhaps doing it more frequently.

    Obviously take William's advice

    Sorry to hear about your drains!!!!!!

    Yeaaa, i'm really not sure about it all - William reckoned once a week would be enough - reapply if he got wet though. I might start a thread on it, get some opinions. I've read basically all old threads on it, but would be nice to find some more recent opinions.

    Also says like dangerous if ingested.. but he's going to groom the area.. i dont get this.. and it scares me honestly
